Reporting to Fabio Canali, Managing Director for Italy, Maurizio Sapio is based in Milan. His nomination is part of Lectra’s strategy to strengthen its teams worldwide, providing solid support and resources for customers across all markets, particularly fashion, to optimize processes and increase overall quality and performance.
“A large number of our Italian customers are in the fashion industry and our design, 3D prototyping and collaborative solutions are perfectly suited to their needs. Fashion is one of the few industries that produce on average 80% of new products every year globally.
In addition, end consumers are demanding an increasing amount of personalization and variety, and our customers therefore need their processes to evolve accordingly, to cope with the multiplicity of models and smaller volumes this implies,” said Daniel Harari, Lectra CEO.
“The longstanding Italian tradition of creating top-quality products, from luxury fashion items to high-end cars and designer furniture, makes this market an ideal candidate for Lectra’s top-of-the-range solutions,” said Fabio Canali, Managing Director, Lectra Italy.
“This, combined with our commitment to customer proximity, has naturally led us to invest in our teams. Maurizio’s experience will be instrumental in supporting customers in the development and integration of our most advanced solutions, proposing consulting and change management guidance in addition to the services traditionally associated with Lectra,” he continued.
“As the most well-known provider of fashion software and fashion cutting rooms in Italy, Lectra is well-positioned to add value to our customers’ existing solutions such as Kaledo, Modaris, Lectra Fashion PLM, Vector and Versalis, and partner with them to rethink their processes, not only in the cutting room, but also further upstream,” stated Maurizio Sapio.
Maurizio Sapio has 15 years’ experience in the IT industry, mostly in sales positions, including at Oracle, PeopleSoft and IBM. He holds a degree in IT systems engineering from the Politecnico di Milano.
Lectra is the world leader in integrated technology solutions that automate, streamline and accelerate product design, development and manufacturing processes for industries using soft materials.
